Sharing Candy

First graders recognize when a shape is divided into congruent (matching) parts. They watch as the teacher makes a shape on the overhead and the pattern (shape) is divided into equal pieces. Students are told that this is a candy bar and you want it to be divided equally so that each person receives an equal share.
